Women Founders

Presented by AIGA/NY

Fri, Jan 25, 2019

Join us for an intimate panel discussion with women founders, who will provide candid insights into navigating the challenges and rewards associated with starting and running your own business.

According to Fast Company, nearly half of women dream of starting their own business, but only 12% think it’s possible. Indeed, a mere 0.1% of the ad agencies in the United States with national or international accounts were founded by women. Moderated by Carly Ayres, founder of 100s Under 100 and the design studio HAWRAF, our panelists will discuss the decision to start their own companies, how they navigated failure and success along the way, and their advice for the next generation of women.

Organized by AIGA/NY, Women Founders is part of the “Fresh Dialogue” event series. These events are critical discussions that focus on current events, issues of cultural relevance, and emerging topics in the world of design.
